It's-Summertime!

It’s here, it’s here!!!! Summertime is just around the corner and can I say, I am SOOO excited! If you are new to my blogs, this was my first Washington winter after 10 years of living in Southern California. I knew moving up here was going to be an adjustment, but I thought, “eh I grew up in Maine, I’m used to the seasons.” However, I didn’t realize just how much it really does rain up here! I swear about 90% of our days since October have either been rainy, misty, overcast, or in a couple instances snowing.  My lack of vitamin D is very apparent and I cannot be more excited for our dry sunny season to be upon us. I want to soak it all in!...CONTINUE READING

Fantasy

Confession time. I’m a little over 60 years old, and I’m still playing fantasy games. Apparently that's a bit of an anomaly.  Statistics online say only 15 percent of gamers are over 55, which means I’m older than over 85% of other players. And, as the oldest participant in my Dungeons and Dragons group, I can’t disagree with the stats...CONTINUE READING

WinePuzzles-2024

Why wine, you ask? Wine not! The earliest known traces of wine date back to 6000 BCE. It plays an important role in Judaism and Christianity, and is popular for alcoholic beverage to drink alone, enjoy with food, and even cook with. The United States is in the top 5 countries of the world in terms of tons produced, of which California produces nearly 85%. As a California native, I proudly present my blog on wine puzzles!  As I also proudly sport my “Puzzles and wine make life fine” shirt, courtesy of Etsy.  (Disclaimer: Please only consume alcohol if you are of legal drinking age. Do not drink to excess. Do not drink and drive. Definitely stay home and puzzle.)...CONTINUE READING

Dinosaur Day

One of the movies I’ve seen hundreds of times and won’t ever tire of is Jurassic Park. Wearing out our VHS tape of this 90s staple instilled in me a love of dinosaurs, so this Dinosaur Day—June 1st—seems like a great time to puzzle some dinos!

There are so many dinosaur-themed puzzles on the market, and Puzzle Warehouse has more than 100 options currently in stock. One of my favorites is Dino Toys Come Alive with art by Jan Patrik Krasny in 1000 pieces from Anatolian....CONTINUE READING

Good Grief

As puzzle fans, we all know the benefits of jigsaw puzzles. Puzzling improves our focus, concentration, and attention to detail. But in my opinion, the greatest benefit is the incredible magic that puzzles work in our brains...CONTINUE READING

Jigsaw-Nationals-2024

At the end of March, I had the pleasure of participating in the USA Jigsaw Puzzle Association National Championships. 

 

Some brief history - the USA Jigsaw Puzzle Association was formed in 2020 by 5 motivated puzzlers. They are the official American liaison to the World Jigsaw Puzzle Federation to help puzzlers compete at Worlds. Their first national event was held in 2022 and boasted hundreds of participants, multiple vendors and a packed schedule of activities along with speed puzzling competitions for individuals, pairs and teams...CONTINUE READING

Map-Puzzles-2024

Who needs GPS when you have maps- map puzzles that is. Technology can be both good and bad. Like anything there’s pros and cons to it. I’m not the best with directions and often need to use the GPS on my phone and my car at the same time. Even with such technological advancements, I still manage to miss turns and get lost. That being said (and I know I’m dating myself by disclosing the following) I prefer traditional maps. Note that I said I prefer them…not that I use them. I mean can you even imagine what my passengers would think if I unfolded a paper map to get to where I’m going? It would be comical to say the least...CONTINUE READING

Bike to Work Day

I got my first bicycle when I was 7 or 8 years old. It was a purple Schwinn, with a banana seat. I didn’t have a sissy bar because I thought it would just get in the way. When I was 10 or 11 I got my first ten-speed bike, the Free Spirit from Sears. It’s easy to remember this one because, although it was a Christmas present, I had to pay for half of it myself. I spent the whole year saving money, storing it in a little brown envelope in my top dresser drawer. It was so exciting to hand the cash to my parents and to finally have a bike with gears!...CONTINUE READING

World-Cocktail-Day-2024!

Usually when I’m puzzling, my beverage of choice is usually a cup of tea or coffee. Not today! It is World Cocktail Day and am deciding between my traditional Gin and Tonic or if I want to try something a bit more fun. I’ve done plenty of puzzles with cocktails in the image but to be honest, this my first time celebrating this as a holiday, and only because I’ve now learned about it for this blog. Before we get into the puzzles, here’s a little history lesson...CONTINUE READING
